On April 16, 2021, the University Hospitals Consortium (the AUB Medical Center, St. Joseph University’s Hôtel-Dieu de France, the St. George Hospital University Medical Center, and the Lebanese American University’s Medical Center-Rizk Hospital) concluded an agreement with the Ministry of Public Health to administer 320,000 shots (to vaccinate 160,000 individuals). The AUB Medical Center will be responsible for administering 90,000 shots (to vaccinate 45,000 individuals).
More than 60 percent of this allocation (56,000 shots, to vaccinate 28,000 people) will be used for members of the AUB family (students, faculty, staff, and their dependents); the balance will be used to vaccinate people at other universities and schools – and people living in communities where the need is especially great.
The members of the consortium have agreed that all funds that are needed for this nationwide vaccination drive will be secured by the members and from charitable donations. All vaccines will be administered at no cost to the individuals themselves.
This is an extraordinary commitment especially given the devastating economic and financial circumstances in Lebanon and the region that are imposing unprecedented challenges for all consortium members. Despite the challenges, this is what AUB will do. It is what our community expects us to do. It is what we expect of ourselves and are proud to do.
But, we cannot do it alone. Together, however, we can do this – and so much more. Our alumni and friends have always responded. We know they will do so this time as well. We need your help. Your gift of any amount will save lives.
We are especially grateful to Mr. Rafi Manoukian for his support.

On behalf of the people of Lebanon, thank you for your support.
